the reality of his position seems to contradict that. on education. for example on pell grants. he said tuesday night that he wants to continue pell grants for all students and everything and yet he supports the ryan budget which would cut pell grants. >> yeah. >> you know, i haven't read the exact line in the ryan budget on the pell grant cut. i think the house bill that passed didn't cut pell grants because it was a mandated increase for the maximum pell grant. the question is how much money is overall available to fund students up to that maximum and it is unclear what he would do. he did say in his response to that college students' question that he would continue to -- i think he said he would let pell grants grow but it is not clear what that means. then he continued on to say and we'll have our loan program which, to my ears meant he's not going to have the obama loan program and he had in mind a change away from the subsidized loans. but i don't -- i have no inside knowledge on what that might be. >> bill: in

federally subsidized student loans and pell grants. i wish i could say we will give you more. a debt of $16 trillion is bearing down on us. and as governor johnson said, we could well be like germany after world war i. i do not support this, and the person that asked the question on the internet is not going to like it, but we can't afford more pell grants and federally subsidized student loans. we have to balance the budget and decline the debt.
